At the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California, Google has already kicked off its annual I/O developer conference on Wednesday with the unveiling of a wide range of Pixel gadgets that will be released this summer and beyond. Smarttechvillas is looking forward to the final day conference today. Meanwhile we have highlighted the keynotes, a brief look at what the company has in store for the future.
Insights from Google’s I/O keynote include the following:
This fall, Google is expected to release the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which were shown off in a teaser video. The camera bar is getting an aluminium finish, and both gadgets will be powered by Google’s next-generation Tensor chip.
There will be two versions of the Pixel 7: one with a dual-camera system and one with three and Google’s Android 13 will be pre-installed on the devices.
The Pixel Watch, Google’s first completely built smartwatch, was also shown off at the event. With a circular, domed shape, an easily-pressable side button, and interchangeable bands, Google’s Pixel Watch will be available in the fall of 2018.
With an “enhanced” Wear OS interface, the watch will have “more fluid” navigation, “smart notifications,” “built-in Fitbit capabilities” for fitness monitoring, and more.
A new mid-range smartphone from Google has been announced, the Pixel 6a, which costs $449 and falls somewhere between the iPhone SE and iPhone 11.
Unlike the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the Pixel 6a contains the same Google Tensor chip as the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro.
Active noise cancellation, transparent mode, hands-free “Hey Google” voice control, automated Bluetooth pairing between previously associated devices, and integration with Google’s Find My Device app are just some of the features of Google’s new Pixel Buds Pro wireless earbuds.
The AirPods Pro cost $249, while the BeatsX are priced at $199. Additionally, with the Pixel Tablet, Google plans to re-enter the tablet industry in 2023, despite the fact that Android tablets have never been as popular as iPads. A tensor chip will be used to power the tablet.
